Quick and Easy Strawberry Pie

easy strawberry pie, quick desserts

One of our favorite treats in the summer is this Quick and Easy Strawberry Pie.  All you need is a few ingredients, and a few hours of chilling time.

All you need is 4 cups of strawberries,  1 cup sugar, a graham cracker crust, 1 box of strawberry jello, 2 Tbsp cornstarch, and 1 1/4 cup of water.  

Boil the sugar, water, and cornstarch over medium heat.  Stir frequently as the mixtures starts to boil and thicken.  

Add 1/4 cup of the strawberry jello to the mixture, stir and remove from the heat.  It will become a bright red color.  All to cool, and then place in the refrigerator to chill for 1 - 2 hours.  

Add 4 cups of cut strawberries to the chilled gel in the saucepan.  Stir well to make sure all of the strawberries are covered.  Add the mixture to a graham cracker crust.  We like to use a chocolate crust. Place back in the refrigerator, and chill for 2 more hours.

When the pie is done chilling, it is ready to eat.   The pie tastes great covered with whipped topping.
